Top 10 Best Selling Cars In Australia

Top 10 Best Selling Cars In Australia
June 6, 2018 markofferdahl

Aussies love their utes, it’s no secret. So it won’t come as a surprise that two of the top-selling vehicles in Australia in 2018 so far are dual cab utes. Looking at recent figures, there appears to be a growing trend in leaving behind the traditional family car and opting for high-riding wagons instead. Toyota, Mazda and Mitsubishi in particular, are enjoying widespread popularity. Whether you drive a ute, a wagon or something a little more compact, however, there’s something on this list for everyone!

Toyota HiLux

The Toyota HiLux had a strong start to the year, with 3860 units sold in January alone, reports. It continues to be at the top of the most sold list each month in 2018. It’s no wonder, however, as owners of this ute enjoy superior assistive technology such as vehicle stability control. It also drives with a quietness not often found in other heavy-duty vehicles.

Ford Ranger

The Ford Ranger comes close on the heels of the HiLux in 2018. It’s comfortable, spacious and practical. The Ford Ranger also comes in a variety of configurations, which makes it an excellent choice of vehicle for either work or private use.

Toyota Corolla

Arguably one of Australia’s most popular passenger cars, the Toyota Corolla is a trusty steed that has stood the tests of time. A newer hatchback model is set for release in August, and it’s predicted that it will knock the socks off its competitors, the Hyundai i30 and Volkswagen Golf. It will incorporate state of the art safety technology, and its lower centre of gravity should improve the overall ride.

Mazda 3

The Mazda 3 is another firm favourite with Australian car owners. It’s easy to drive, stylish and doesn’t guzzle fuel at a rate that leaves your wallet empty every time you approach the pump. Auto emergency braking is just another reason why Mazda 3s are popular amongst first time drivers, in particular.

Hyundai i30

The Hyundai i30 is renowned for its affordability and safety. It offers a smooth ride that’s comfortable for both driver and passenger alike. It’s quiet and effortless to drive. A few people complain that it’s a little vanilla, but at the end of the day, it’s totally reliable, which has kept sales soaring for years.

Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 is another fuel-efficient superstar. The new Akera model has an impressive camera set-up which will pick up pedestrians, parked cars and any other obstacles for improved safety. These SUVs are quiet, with light steering and soft, responsive braking.

Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 has recently been upgraded with a whole range of new safety gear in order to compete with the CX-5 on the SUV market. The GPS navigation in the RAV4 is top notch; however, the infotainment is a little lacklustre. The RAV4 is surprisingly roomy, with plenty of leg space for back seat passengers, making it a great option for a growing family.

Volkswagen Golf

The Volkswagen Golf combines comfort with responsiveness. It’s easy to handle and has a vast range of audio options for Apple and Android. Safety features include auto braking, cruise control with a speed limiter (for those drivers with a lead foot), reversing cameras and a driver fatigue alert.

Mitsubishi ASX

The Mitsubishi ASX is roomy, comfortable and has plenty of grunt for a small car. It’s particularly smartphone friendly, with Bluetooth connectivity and voice control. It comes with roof rails to store extra luggage, and the hill-start assist is a godsend if you live or work in a particularly hilly area of town.

Mitsubishi Triton

The Mitsubishi Triton has been a rising star in recent years. While it hasn’t quite unseated the HiLux or Ranger, it’s still a reliable, sturdy ute. The Triton is big on safety, with seven airbags and electronic traction control to prevent skidding on slippery roads. Electronic stability control and trailer sway control are also features that put the Triton a notch above other light commercial vehicles regarding safety.
